    The chef's tasting with wine pairing was truly an outstanding experience, not to be missed next time! Learning the creative thought process behind the menu inspiration contributes to the delicious flavors served. Each course was unique and the over all menu had something for everyone. Presentation an art form. Learning about the wines adds to the experience (I bought several from Macs today!) And as always, service was spot on. We are so fortunate to have this "truly a neighborhood gem!"

    Date night before Chris Rock at The Fox. A great selection of South American wine. Tried numerous things from the menu and they were all very tasty! Empenadas, ceviche, arepas, and a skewer. Delish!

    Ate here prior to a show at The Fox. The staff was great getting our food and drinks knowing we had to leave at a certain time. The food was so good- the yucca fries and plantains were amazing. The only possible negative was the volume inside. There is nothing to mute the volume so it was quite loud. If you plan on hearing the people at your table, I suggest a table outside.

    Outstanding food. It was busy, so the service was a little slower but it was worth it! The owner came over & introduced himself and told his story. This has become one of my new favorite spots.

    Great wine selection! The empanadas are amazing. My friend said the empanadas were the best she has had and she loves empanadas, so she has had many of them. I love a couple blocks away and just love being able to take visiting friends here. One of the owners even came by our table to introduce himself. Such great service and lovely food! Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures because I was too focused on eating!

    Went for a bite and a drink before a show. Our waiter literally disappeared half way through our meal. After asking another staff member we were told he had to go home. This led to a stressful experience when you are on a time crunch to get to the Fox. Another waiter stepped in and was great but still left a bad taste in our mouth. Food was tasty but overpriced

    The food was great. However, the servers were not equipped to handle the amount of customers at the restaurant.

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on June 12, 2022Thank you so much for your review. We truly appreciate your feedback. As a new restaurant, we are still trying to learn our business patterns and make adjustments to our staffing accordingly as we have very little history to go on. On the day of your visit, we did get caught by surprise with the number of guests who visited us. I am truly sorry that this had an impact on your experience. I hope we will have the opportunity to serve you again.

    This was our first time dining at El Venedo Local, but it was recommended by a friend's coworker and so glad we checked it out. The food is delicious. Between the four of us we tried at least one dish from every section and no one was disappointed. While we pretty much ate our own orders, this menu is great for sharing/family style. Don't miss out on the torta de chocolate or the guava pastelito and cafe con leche for dessert! Fantastic service. Our server was Vanessa and she was a great guide through the wines and the food.

    We were there before a show at the Fox. It wound up getting canceled but we had such a good time getting to know the owners we almost didn’t care. Food is great. Love supporting small local businesses. Especially when it also helps support LGBQT+ community. Will be back a lot.

    Great food with large wine selection. We sat outside which was really pleasant. Our waiter was terrific - but I don't know his name. He juggled a good size crowd (many were headed to the Fox for a show) but did great with us. We loved the evening and look forward to our return.

    Great outdoor patio. Service was friendly & with a smile. Knowledgeable wait staff. Food was fun and tasty. Just a little pricey, especially for tapas. Had the ceviche(fish), two arepas, and the beef pincho (skewer). Ceviche was fresh and delicious. The chicken arepa was yummy with mild “green” taste. Shareable for two. Black bean arepa was also good but chicken was way better. Loved the beef pinchos. But $25 for two skewers was pricey!! Two people, bottle of wine and dinner = $150+ tip.

    A chaotic experience. Shortly after settling in we were told the kitchen closes at 8 even though restaurant is open until 9. My wine didn't show up for 25 minutes. One dish we ordered never made it to our table. Food is well prepared. We enjoyed the vegetable arepa, ceviche and yucca fries. Excellent piece sour.

    We enjoyed our meals. Dining area was Very cute and clean. Food was very tasty and fresh. Black beans were bland and needed some more seasoning (we are from Tampa and know black beans LOL). Cocktails were yummy. It was Mother’s Day, and they handed out flowers to moms, but skipped me. I was there with my kids. Not the end of the world, but it would have been sweet if they didn’t overlook me. We will return next time in ATL.

    We made a reservation for Mother’s Day brunch and they were running behind schedule with the previous tables staying longer than anticipated at their table. The owners at El Viñedo were so accommodating, brought us all a bottle of champagne while we waited and were very apologetic. The food and service is fantastic! Love the atmosphere. Highly recommend el vinedo.

    WOW! The food at this restaurant is exceptional. We had ceviche, yucca fries, and a beef skewer. All are the best we have had in recent memory. The decor is lovely and we enjoyed the people-watching on Peachtree. Service as a bit inconsistent, but this is totally forgivable at a new restaurant during a labor shortage.
